This one is less creepy in form and design (although it’s creepy because it looks like a real baby), more creepy in situation. It was sitting up on this wall staring at everyone as they passed by. Like the lingering lost soul of an abandoned child. And it looks like it has a dirty diaper.
And in case you missed them from previous posts:
This is one my daughter got for Christmas. Sometimes I wake up at night and find it at sitting the edge of my bed staring at me. (Original post: What It Means to Be Brazilian, and Why I Have a Long Road…)
This one we found in the playroom at my sister-in-law’s building. It kind of looks like it is permanently screaming.
It’s really the hair that’s disturbing on this one (ok, the eyes too). It’s pretty common here for baby dolls to just have hair growing out of one or two spots on their head. This one was at a little school in Rio.
This one is particularly curious in design. It has one mechanical hand that will squeeze your finger and a tongue that moves in and out – for no reason that I could figure out. Creepy. I actually think this is an American product that was rejected in the U.S. market and brought to Brazil because the box is completely in English. You can pick up the Baby Sweet Touch for a sweet price at the Sao Paulo Sam’s Club. (Original post: Sam’s Club Sao Paulo.)
I’m fairly certain there will be more to come…
